This is the game thread for the Battlestar Galactica game.

The first lynch will be on Tuesday night, October 3rd.

Lynch time will be 9pm. I may not be around to call the lynch then - I will try to be, though, or to find an additional moderator who can do it.

Night orders are due by 11pm. It would be wise, on days when I am not there for lynch, to include an alternate order in case someone else is lynched as some players may have additional secret voting abilities. Where possible, I will check with you to make sure that the intent of your orders is carried out. (If you have skype, google talk or MSN Messenger, please consider telling me your ID so I can contact you that way as well as here).

If my not being on at lynch time is a real problem, please let me know and I may be able to tinker with the timelines a little. At this stage, I expect that I will not be on for lynch on Tuesday night, due to a work meeting.

Re: Battlestar Galactica Roles Being Sent Now - No posting y
This game is based on the new (Ron Moore) Battlestar Galactica series, not the original. It is set some time during early season 2, so there may be some minor spoilers for those who have not watched that far. There are DEFINITELY spoilers for anyone who has not seen the first season.

This is a HIGH involvement, MODERATE complexity game for 16 or more players. (apparently 20)
Start date: October 3rd

The following roles will definitely be in the game:
- Commander Bill Adama
- President Laura Roslin
- Vice President Dr Gaius Balthar
- “Six”, a CYLON

The following roles may or may not be in the game:

Military personnel

- Colonel Saul Tigh
- Captain Lee Adama (Apollo)
- Lieutenant Kara Thrace (Starbuck)
- Lt Karl Agathon (Helo)
- Lt Sharon Valerii (Boomer)
- Chief Galen Tyrol
- Lt Felix Gaeta
- Anastasia “Dee” Dualla

Civilians

- Billy Keikeya, aide to President Roslin
- “Doc” Cottle
- Tom Zarek, a former criminal

Some players will be crewmembers and pilots on the Galactica. Others will be civilians. Other players will have a special role and/or secret ability.

The following abilities are guaranteed to be in the game:

- at least one Seer
- at least 4 Cylons
- at least one Sorceror
- at least one Vigilante-type role (one-shot Hunter?)
- at least one Bodyguard-type role (possibly with restrictions)



Every day, you will vote to expel a suspected Cylon from the airlock. This game uses the Cassandra automated vote tally system. To vote for someone, place the words [vote melissa] in square brackets, between bold tags. Of course, if you vote melissa you may not have a very pleasant time in the game devil
You may unvote a specific player or unvote all (see Cassie rules).

Ties will be broken by Longest Held Last Vote (ie first to lynch majority). Any additional votes or bonus votes that players may have as special abilities will be considered non-last votes if there is a need to break a tie.

Every night, the Cylons will walk the ship and execute one player. At the start of the game, there are four Cylons on the ship - however, one of them is SIX, who cannot communicate with the other Cylons or players in any way (Exception: DR GAIUS BALTHAR). There may also be up to 2 additional Cylons in deep cover within the crew. Any player may be a Cylon (Exception: CDR BILL ADAMA) and the fact that a player (eg Boomer) is a Cylon on the show does not mean that they will necessarily be a Cylon in the game.

Deep Cover Cylons may become aware of their nature at some point during the game, or they may discover at some point that they are doing things they had not planned to do. You will have to wait and see.


PMs and IMs

You may only send PMs to people indicated in your role post. If you are a Cylon, this will include the names of other Cylons.

You must copy the mod on your PMs. I will also set up Cassandra Communication System chat areas for you, if you would prefer to use those.

If you are allowed to PM, you may also IM, as long as you send a transcript of the IM conversation to the moderator.



Other abilities & events

President of the Colonies

At the start of the game, Laura Roslin is President of the Colonies.

The President gets a second, secret selection of who should go out the airlock. This should be PM’d to the moderator before nightfall.

If BILL ADAMA is put out the airlock during the first 5 days, a MUTINY is triggered.

If the President is killed, a general election is triggered.

General Elections

There will be no evictions during a General Election however the Cylons will get one kill between the two days. Elections take 2 days: 1 day for nominations, 1 day for voting.

If a GENERAL ELECTION is triggered, players must be nominated for election by other players. This is done by posting NOMINATE xxx in bold, where xxx is the name of the player (eg NOMINATE melissa).

Once the nomination period has closed, the moderator will announce the names of the candidates. You must then PM the Moderator with the names of up to 3 people that you want to vote for. Once you have voted, you may not change your vote.
At the conclusion of voting, I will announce the name of the Player who is elected president. We will then go into a standard day WITHOUT an additional Cylon kill. This is because the full day cycle is for players’ convenience and not for thematic reasons.

Mutiny
If a MUTINY occurs, the military will be at odds with the Civilians. In this case, Civilians and Military will form discrete factions and the game will become a 3-faction game with additional (and separate) victory conditions for Military and Civilians.

More about roles...
Some stuff about a few of the roles (other info is secret). These roles may not all be in the game.

Commander Bill Adama

Knows the identity of all military personnel. All Military Personnel know the identity of Cdr Adama.
If Bill Adama is put out the airlock during the first 5 days of the game, a MUTINY is triggered.

Apollo and Starbuck

Can PM with each other.

If either is killed, the other gets a vengeance vote. If either is ejected from the airlock while the other is alive, the other will trigger a GENERAL ELECTION.
If Apollo and Starbuck both vote for the same person, their two votes count as three. Such is the persuasive power of Hot Pilots.

Chief Galen Tyrol

The Chief is the Seer. He can view Cylons at night. Woot!

President Laura Roslin

Starts the game as the PRESIDENT OF THE COLONIES.

Billy Keikeya

Special ability: You are PRESIDENT ROSLIN’S bodyguard. You can protect her for a maximum of two nights during the game, although you can try more times than that if the Cylons don’t attack first. The second time you protect her, you will be killed in her place.
If Laura Roslin is no longer President, you can choose to protect either the player or the position of President. (This is a one-time deal; you can’t change your mind each night)

Dr Gaius Balthar

You have a Cylon (Six) that lives inside your head. Only you can see or speak to her.

You have built a machine that detects Cylons. At least, you think it does. Every day, around dawn or not long after, the moderator will announce the results of the Cylon detector's test.

“Six”, a CYLON

You are the Cylon that lives inside GAIUS BALTHAR’S head. You can only communicate with him. You may not post on the main thread at all. You cannot be put out an airlock, because you don’t really exist.

Re: Battlestar Galactica Roles Being Sent Now - No posting y
Rules changes

At this stage, not all military personnel know the identity of Cdr Adama. I think I need to consider that a little more. PM'd suggestions and comments welcome.

Rules clarifications
Ties will be broken by Longest Held Last Vote (ie first to lynch majority). Any additional votes or bonus votes that players may have as special abilities will be considered non-last votes if there is a need to break a tie.

Any players with an ability to view another player will have a random negative N0 view. This includes Dr Baltar's Cylon Detector.

Re: GIP: Battlestar Galactica - Long Day 1 - Lynch Tue @9pm
The Cassandra Automatic Vote Tally System

Your Moderator has enabled the Cassandra Automatic Vote Tally system
for this game. In order for it to function correctly, your votes will
need to be formatted correctly. The following rules will explain what
you will need to do:

Players
1. All votes must be bolded

2. The entire vote statement must be bolded and enclosed in bracekts: [vote jmilum]

3. Only one unvote and/or vote per post. You may have both an unvote
and a vote in the same post, but the unvote must come before the vote

4. You may [unvote all] instead of naming the current player
you are voting

5. If you [vote nightfall] your vote will be locked (voting
nightfall is allowed in the same post as a vote for a player, but it
must come after it, this does not violate Rule #3)

6. Vote tallies will be automatically posted to the game thread hourly
if the tally has changed. The Tally and Vote Logs (for each game day)
are also available on the Cassandra game page.

7. If your vote is not counted be sure to check the Vote Log page and
see if it was marked invalid and why.

8. Case does not matter and simple typos will not cause the vote to fail.

9. You may [vote no lynch] if your game allows it.

10. Quotes below the vote/unvote statement may cause the vote to be missed,
especially if they contain bolded sections.

11. Non voting players will be listed in the tallies. This will only be
correct if the Moderator notes which players have been killed (see below)


Moderators
1. The moderator will need to post [Dawn] when the day begins
(after the night results are posted) and [Dusk] when the lynch
deadline has passed and the day is over. Votes will not be counted
after [Dusk] has been posted. They will be registered again
after [Dawn] is next posted.

2. You may include a day number in the dawn and dusk post for
informational purposes, but it will not be used by the system.
Cassandra will increment an internal counter each time it sees
[Dawn] no matter what day is shown in a dawn post (i.e.
[Dawn 3] the three is allowed but ignored)

3. After dusk has been posted, the Moderator may go to the game page
on Cassandra to request a Final Tally to be posted before the normal
scan period has elapsed (i.e. Game Y gets scanned at 45 min. after the
hour, if it lynches at 7pm the moderator may request a tally to be
posted from the game page before 7:45pm. it will also be posted
regardless of whether or not it has been changed since the last
posting) - Do this by clicking on the 'Retrieve Final Lynch Time Vote' link.

4. You will need to note which players were killed via the lynch or at night by
either posting [killed jmilum] in the thread, or by going to the game
page and editing the player list. When posting in the thread, be sure to post
[dusk] before posting the lynch kill, and post [dawn] before
posting the night kill.
Example:
A. lynch time has passed so post [dusk]
B. goto the game page and select a final tally to be posted
C. check the final tally and post [killed melsana]
D. after the night deadline has passed post [dawn]
E. post the night kill with [killed kima]

Your Moderator has chosen to use the Longest Held Last Vote method for a tiebreaker - This is just for Cassandra system, and there may be a different tiebreaker specified by your Moderator in the ruleset.

I must say that I am worried about the safety of this fleet and the survival of the human race. We are under enemy attack, have terrorists masquerading as leaders, and there are Cylon agents walking among us. Let us hope that Adama and Roslin are up to the task of leading us to Earth, and that the Cylon detector makes substantial progress. At least Balthar seems to have cut the test time in half.

Well, I'm personally confident in Commander Adama and President Roslin. Dr. Baltar is a genius, or so I'm told, so we should be rooting out the Cylons efficiently and quickly.

But, we must be ever vigilant against those that slip among us, ones that will do all they can to stop us from achieving our goal and they must be eliminated for the good and continuance of the human race."

Day 1 has now started.



You are all citizens of the Colonial Fleet, military and civilians, and possibly some cylons as well.

Fortunately, you have excellent leaders in Commander Bill Adama and in President Laura "praisechick" Roslin.

It seems Xandryyte is our existential hero. What is the meaning of life anyway? The Cylon’s have taken away everything I once had to live for. I’m ready to kick some @$$ and take names!

A good question just came up.

"If I know someone's identity, can I PM with them?"

The answer is no. You may only PM with someone if I have specifically said, "You may PM with NAME". If in doubt, check on Cassie - I set up Cassandra chat rooms for all PM buddies.

Good Citizens of the Colonial Fleet,

We have endured some dark and difficult days, and during those times, we have shown ourselves strong. I have faith that as we, the government and the military, work together, we will weed out the cylon threat from within. Dr. Gaius Baltar's cylon detector will hopefully serve to expedite this endeavor. Commander Adama has proven that his military leadership is trustworthy; we can rest assured that his forces will do everything possible to protect us from attack, both from without and within.

I know that the days ahead may be filled with mistrust and accusation. I urge you, good citizens, to have faith in the gods that they will not only help us discern the identities of the true enemies, but will also lead us to our new home, Earth.

So say we all.

Hi everyone. I watch the show on DVD, and have not yet had a chance to watch season 2.5 so if you are going to talk about anything past the halfway point of season 2 can you put it in spoiler tags please.

Otherwise... whoo hoo... time to hunt some cylons.

Hey, this game starting has reminded me how soon the start of the next season of BSG is

Right, time to start tracking down those evil (yet mostly very attractive) cylons and kicking them out of the fleet for good.

Good Hunting, y'all.

Is anybody else concerned about how much Draedus has beeen acting up lately? It's almost ominous - the blips that seem to flash in and out of our viewing area...

It's almost like we're being followed.

You don't think they have some sort of tracking device on us do you?

Agrees wholeheartedly with the President. They've been through a lot and have still survived as a race and she prays that continues to happen.


OOC: And with that, I am off to work. No internet connection, but will be home in time to catch up on the thread before lynch.

Sidenote to Kristiefix: Answer is 42.
